Locke Okayed as Commerce Secretary Multichannel

Former Washington State Governor Gary Locke was approved by the Senate Commerce Committee as the next Secretary of Commerce, Multichannel News reports. Although the full Senate needs to approve the nomination, it's essentially pro forma after the committee's approval, the trade publication says. In his new role, he'll oversee the ongoing digital-television converter box coupon program, the publication says.
